Product Manager Interview

Product Manager
Wichita, KS

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at NetApp in August 2012.

Interview Details – The HR recruiter interviewed me first. Then the hiring manager and then each of the members of the team. After that, I had one more interview with the hiring manager. It was a pretty rigorous process.

Interview Question – Since I was being hired for the New College Graduate program, the questions were fairly generic.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They were not negotiable with vacation but were negotiable with the salary and bonuses. Overall, it went really quick and ultimately the hiring manager makes the decision.

Product Manager Interview

Product Manager

I applied through college or university and interviewed at NetApp.

Interview Details – I spoke to NetApp at a career fair on-campus. I was invited after that to a final round interview at their headquarters at Sunnyvale, California.

They expected a detailed understanding of the position, roles and responsibilities. They also asked about prior experiences that would be a fit for the role

Interview Question – A mini-case - A client makes a request for modifying the storage software. The client is insistent but the development team is busy on other work and unable to dedicate time to the client request. Also, you are not sure if making an investment in modifying the software will be useful for other clients. What would you do in this situation?   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Product Manager Interview

Product Manager
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied online and the process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at NetApp in April 2012.

Interview Details – I applied through the careers page and received a phone interview invitation from the recruiter via email. The communication from the recruiter leading up to the interview was very good. The interviewer was a lower level product manager, who asked six background & fit questions over the 40 minute session. Everything seemed to go smoothly, although he made a comment that may have indicated that I was overqualified by a couple of years. In general however I felt pretty good about the phone interview.

Things fell apart after that....there was no communication AT ALL from the recruiter over the next 5 weeks. I sent five emails and left three voice messages inquiring of my status and none of them were returned. I'm guessing that the recruiter was laid off due to the company's shaky financial performance last quarter, but even then it seems that someone should have picked up his remaining work. Totally unprofessional!
